With this process, Barnhardt meticulously removes all of these foreign substances from every fiber in order to produce the clean, white, pure cotton fiber that consumers expect from their feminine care and baby care products. Nobody wants to open a packet of tampons or diapers—the products we use on the most sensitive parts of our bodies—and see anything less than pure, soft, whiter-than-white cotton.
While prior technologies for cleaning and purification effectively answered yesterday’s challenges, the ever-higher standards of consumers demand new innovative solutions. With the advent of EVOC, Barnhardt now delivers the cleanest, purest cotton on the market today. Now, nonwovens manufacturers and product development teams have a choice: rather than resorting to plastic-derived synthetics, they can opt for a natural fiber product that consumers actually prefer, which is also better for the environment. EVOC delivers the promise of cotton—for manufacturers, consumers, and the environment—for the most discerning applications of 100% cotton nonwovens, including very lightweight nonwovens purposed for hygiene products and wipes for personal and baby care.
